    This thread is not jumping out and saying GRD III, the street shooter's dream. Shame, I was thinking exactly the same thing

    Please tell me you haven't been waiting for five months to configure your camera?

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Sorry, never saw this thread back when it was started. I did a lot of B&W street work with the GRDIII. I played around with the high contrast B&W JPEG mode, but ultimately found it too restrictive. So about 99% of my street work with that camera was shot raw and processed with Silver Efex Pro. That sensor was pretty limited and raw was the way I found to get the most from it.

    Probably little help and too late besides, but there you go...

    I shot the whole of the January PaD challenge three years ago with my GRDlll set to HiBW and was very pleased with the results but I agree it can be a little restrictive. These days with my GRD I mostly use Topaz Labs for mono but I still like to dabble with HiBW like a guilty pleasure... ;)
